Actually, when the first plane hit 1WTC (south), within 3 minutes there was a PA announcement over the loudspeakers of 2WTC (north). The statement was, more or less, 'there was an incident in 1WTC, and everything is fine at 2WTC; you may return to your offices'. How do I know this? I heard it over the phone when I called someone in 2WTC after the 1WTC incident. The good news is that most people ignored the PANYNJ and evacuated the building anyway.
